the oklahoma do so by president obama. >> this gives you an idea of the devastation. >> these newest baby pandas are not making their debut for a couple of months. if you can't get enough of the baby pandamonium -- get it -- you can watch it. >> come on. >> putin has banned the import in response to sanctions over his behavior. somebody needs to tell putin destroying food, it doesn't make you a strong leader. it makes you guy fieri, joust stop it. stop it. u. ⌞> i'm norah o'donnell with anthony mason and margaret brennan. charlie rose and gayle king are
8:02 am
off. france president francois hollande honored three this morning. they helped take down a gunman on a train bound for paris. >> they're childhood friends. they helped tackle and subdue the gunman in a train car. he was armed with an ak-47, an automatic lugar pistol, and a box cutter. they described how they kicked in when the friend sensed danger. >> i turned around and looked light was an ak-47. it looks like it was jammed and it wasn't working. alek hit me on the shoulder and said let's go. we ran down, tackled him. we hit the ground. alek came up grabbed his hand while i put him in a choke hold. all three of us starting punching him. i grabbed him again and choked him unconscious while alek was
8:03 am
hitting him in the head with the rifle or pes toll. >> there wasn't much action. >> he seemed to be fighting to the end. so were we. >> i don't know what i would have done if i was by myself. i don't know. i saw spencer get up. i saw alek get up. and those are my close friends, so i was just like i couldn't let them go away. >> i trust both of my friends very much. if it wasn't for them, i would have been dead. and so we all had a critical role in whatever happened. and everyone else that helped. >> stone and skarlatos will head to germany to receive more medical treatment. sadler will return to the u.s. soon. there's more intrigue in the presidential race. vice president joe biden met with senator warren in massachusetts over the weekend. hillary clinton interrupted her
8:04 am
campaign to make stops. >> that's home base for amy klobuchar. her name has been mentioned as a possible vice-presidential candidate. she just published a book "the senator next door." it's published by hartland. great to see you. >> thank you so much. it's great to be on. >> we'll talk in minute. i want to get your news on the day. first, president joe biden, do you think he gets into the race? >> i think no one knows. i think he's conducting a series of meetings. i'm obviously a supporter of hillary clinton. i think she's got some great ideas and being close to iowa, i've seen her campaign and how well it's been and we go from if there. >> but you keep hearing there's a lot of angst among the democratic party and whether this e-mail or scandal is going to hurt senator clinton's chances in the long run?
8:05 am
>> she's handed over the drive and 30,000-some e-mails and is willing to go before a public hearing in congress as well as key baits. i think there's going to be plenty of time to discuss that, but key for me is really getting to the debate on the real issues here, the economy, where the country is. we have candidates on the other side who said kids who lived in this country for a long time should be uprooted and sent across the border. these are major things to debate in this country. >> this discussion about jeb bush used the phrase anchor babies to describe children of mention cab immigrants and others who are here in this country. >> i think it will be a big deal. you see republican candidates like marco rubio coming out on the other sigh. i think that's going to be an issue, a lot of things we're not discussing right now because we have so many candidates in the race. i think that's going to be what we're talk about.
8:06 am
>> if the vice president enters the race, how does it complicate the democratic scenario? >> well, i think obviously we're going to have debates. hillary clinton made it clear she never thought it with us going to be a coronation, that there are going to be a lot of other people, bernie and others, and will be one more strong kaejt in the race. >> there's a story in your book i love from your daughter you can't have kids until you run an election. >> that's from a mom who has set high expectations. >> do you think we need women on these tickets for both parties? >> yes, i hope we have women on the ticket for both parties. think the time has come. now that we have 20 women it's made a big difference. more importantly, the women in the senate, there's numbers to show it, have got an lot done and we certainly need more results in government which is one of the things i've focused. >> and you'd be hoping to join
8:07 am
that ticket? >> notice the book is called "the senator next door" and that mice job now. >> one of your children called you a submarine mom? >> my daughter was actually teasing me. she said, mom, there are these helicopter moms who make sure your homework is done. i decided you're a submarine mom. said what does that mean? it means tough and cool. she said, no, mom. you lurk beneath the surface and come up unexpectedly. i think a lot of moms can relate to that. >> what did you think. >> i thought it was the best description and she came up with herself. >> i've known you for a while. you talk about your parents' divorce. your dad was a sports writer. many knew his byline and followed him. you talk about his alcoholism and his recovery. why share all those details? >> well, i think people need to know, first of all, that not
8:08 am
every politician is a cartoon caricature and not everyone is trying to duke it out every day. these are real people. if you're going to do a job representing your neighbors and come in with that approach, they need to understand they have normal backgrounds, they've overcome obstacles. 's part too many people shy away from politics and i don't want to be involved. i thought if you put it out there and talk about your high school prom and your date danced with another girl in the fountain at the prom and you once a car hop and pie cutter, they wouldn't be afraid to try out politics. and you're voting on the iran deal. do you think it ultimately passes? >> i do. i think in the end it will be upheld t agreement we don't quite know where the votes are. but the u the way i look at it,
8:09 am
it's the best available option to stop iran from getting a nuclear weapon. >> amy klobuchar, thank you so much. >> thank you. ite bess great to be on. jill schlesinger is in our toyota green room. ahead, her advice

yours, our chocolate spreads. wall street investors are bracing for another big drop. it plummeted 531 points friday. the dow has dropped more than 10% from its peak in may.
8:15 am
they're dropping because of bad economic news in china. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger is with us this morning. good morning. >> good morning. >> how bad is this going to get? >> i don't know. i've got to pull out my crystal ball. nobody knows. a correction is part of normal markets. usually we get them every year and ice been four years since the last correction so we've been lock overdue for one. think i what happens in these moments is everyone starts to get really anxious and they think, oh, my gosh, we're down 10% and it's going to be 20%, 30%, 40%. the reality is we don't know where it's going to end. exclusively we overshoot. if you're a long-term investors, you should be psyched. things are on sale. >> that's the upside. you're buying for your 401(k).
8:16 am
>> absolutely. the downside is if you're no longer putting into your portfolio, this is a little white knuckle time. i hope it's cured us of putting all 100% in our stocks. you're going to be happy to have some cash and u.s. bonds in that portfolio and hopefully that will help you weather the storm. >> that's what i was going to ask you. is it nice to build a new insurance policy? do you reallocate? >> yes, you should have reallocated back in may, but we can't go back and do that. one of the reasons we talk about diversified portfolios and auto rebalancing means you always want to keep your balance pretty much within 5% of your target is you don't have to be reactionary. look. i know what's happening. there's a devil and an angel on your shoulder, right? the angel say, hang out. the devil is saying get me out of this. it's too painful.
8:17 am
try to put the devil at bay. >> one of the beg decisions comng up for janet yellen, the former yus secretary says they should delay the decision. do you think that happens? >> i think that's possible. look. there are clearly destabilizing forces in the economy right now. we know that china's under pressure. i think what the fed has got to look for is whether there's real impact on the u.s. economy. just to draw a distinction, four years ago when we had the last correction, things were a lot worse. individuals are in better shape. they pay down credit, they've saved up some money, so i think the fed may be able to get ahead of it. just remember if they don't increase interest rates and something bad does happen to the economy, they have nowhere to go.
8:18 am
they're at zero. >> jill schlesinger. thanks much. >> we're going to go back to the national zoo. you're watching "cbs this morning." you. one that's lightweight. attacking odors cat lovers hate. and with glade freshness, that smells just great. every home, every cat. there's a tidy cats for that. i'm feeling lucky. today is the day. i knew it!

rolling down the hill. >> this grizzly bear in alaska apparently doesn't have a care in the world. as you can see, he caught on that it's a lot more fun to roll down a hill than walking. >> that's how i want to spend my day. >> that's kind of awesome. in our continuing panda coverage, we're following the newborn panda cubs at the washington zoo in d.c. mei xiang surprised zookeepers over the weekend by delivering twins. jan crawford is outside with what happened overnight. good morning. >> reporter: anthony, actually it was a really tough night for the pandas. very few survive, twins, after the birth because it's so hard for the mom to take care of both. one of the ways to ensure chances of survival is swap them out. one of them will stay and nurse
8:23 am
while the other will go in the incubator. last night mama bear did not want to give up one of those cubs. it took hours and hours and houring. they were event annually able to make the swap. we spoke about the challenges. >> it's been an exciting but exhausting night. we have been up all night with the cubs taking care of them and trying to help mei xiang the mother panda take care of them. this first week is incredibly critical. it's still touch and go. anything can happen right now. we watch those cub, monitor them round the clock 100% of the time. we're hopeful but definitely cautious. we're watching and preparing for everything. >> reporter: optimistic but also realistic. we've got our fingers tightly crossed that they'll make it. >> thank you. a very pregnant human mom to

8:31 am
britain's "telegraph" reports on iphone's faulty camera on the 6 plus. many complain they take blurry pictures. you can check your serial number. apple is offering a free fix for the cameras. and "the dallas morning news" calls for a new protective measure in baseball parks. a fan was hit in the head on august 21st. detroit pitcher justin verlander tweeted more protective measures need be put in place in all ball parks. players are sick of seeing injuries that could easily be avoigted. a new study on how romantic relationships bring up. married women are more likely than married known take the first step toward divorce but the same isn't true when nonmarried couples split up. heidi is with columbia university's business school.
8:32 am
her latest book is "no one understands you, and what to do about it." such great title. maybe it has something to do with divorce. >> i think it does. >> thanks for being here. i just got married. when i read this, it kind of made me cringe a little bit. explain it. >> i'm married too. it's okay. it turns out -- it's really interesti interesting. we've known for decades women in general would be -- more than roughly two-thirds marriages end because a woman initiates divorce. what's interesting is very committed but not married where they have children, that's not the case. it turns those end about 50sh 50, mail initiated or female-initiated. also what they learned is women in traditional marriages tend to be less happy than men, but, again that's not true in these nontraditional relationships
8:33 am
where actually they seem to be equally happy. >> why do you think the difference is occurring? >> well, what all of the evidence seems to point to is that while society has really changed a lot in terms of gender equality and men and women -- actually many men and women going into marriages feeling like they want to have an equitable relationship. the tradition of marriage comes with a lot of baggage. it comes with ideas about the roles -- a lot of traditions of what the role of the husband and wife are. >> you're suggesting that married women have more responsibility, less independence and less happiness. >> that's it in a nutshell. there's data that shows the division of source is a major source of happiness and unhappiness and those predominantly go to women when they work as long as men do. what seems to be the case, though, is a lot of these marriages that are failing are ones where the couples did actually start out wanting
8:34 am
equality but then falls into the roles. >> so how do we prevent this? >> i think in a nutshell the way you prevent it is being very conscious of it. that's what most couples don't do. by starting out your marriage by explicit italy talking about who's going to do what and changing the conversation. keep talking to each other about who's doing what so the resentment doesn't build up. there are many happy marriages. >> you have to keep renegotiating terms. >> over and over again. it can be done. >> one of the things i thought that was interesting is married people are healthier but not necessarily happy. >> i think a lot has to do with health care. but there's also a sense in which maifred couples to tend to push one another certainly compared to single people go to the doctor or get things checked out. >> that meant a lot. >> is some of this a numbers game? marriage and divorce are no
8:35 am
longer carried the same weight, perhaps taboo as it once did. is it that women can pull the trigger more easily these days? >> it certainly is the case and also people feel they have more options and don't have to get married in order to have all of those things but the ratio has stayed about the same. going back to 1940, 1950, two thirds of the time women initiate the divorce. there's something going on. they need to have a lot of open discussion and sew resentment doesn't build and then you can have a happy marriage. >> there's a lot of married women out there look at those graphics, thinking, uh-oh. visitors are enjoying a beach experience in the heart of washington. thousands of tourists and residents rew lining up to play in an ocean of plastic balls at the national museum. they look at some of the largest indoor core inthee yum columns
8:36 am
in the world. chip reid is at the beach where play is encouraged. i'm jealous, good morning. >> come on in. the water is fine. you may wonder why someone would be here instead of the real beach. there's no sand, no sun and the water is balls but try asking the 140,000 people who have come here already this summer. they call it the beach and this is the ocean. so long as you're willing to play pretend. >> what's the most fun thing about it? >> the water. >> the water. that's great. the water. >> reporter: the water is 750,000 plastic balls inside the massive atrium of washington's national building museum. you won't drown but get ready to go under whether you want to or not. you look like you were struggling. >> i was.
8:37 am
it's much more difficult than it looks. >> reporter: it looks much more like quick sanld, isn't it? >> i think that's an accurate description. >> what do you like about it. >> it's full of fun. >> what do you like about it. >> it's full of fun. >> that seems to be the theme. >> what do you like about it? >> i feel like a kid. >> reporter: in fact there's a name for adults acting like kids, kadults. >> let's give it a try. speaking of kadults, this is not the first time someone from "cbs this morning" has been seen swimming in plastic balls. >> who's in our celebrity ball pit. >> reporter: and it seems to be catching on. more than 100 thousand people have come here this summer. it's so popular they don't mind waiting in line.
8:38 am
according to chase rind, director of the national museum. >> people are smiling. what's really amazing to me is there have been waits as long as two hours to get in. when they leave, they thank us. >> they don't complain. >> nobody complain. >> reporter: it took about two weeks to create this indoor beach. it's the brainchild of snarkatecture. >> it invites play and interaction and accessibility to a wide audience including children. >> and if you're a little queasy about the balls rolling around this in there. >> they're coated with an anti-microbrial surace. >> reporter: it's a germ block. he says you can relax. it's not all child play.
8:39 am
on wednesday evening the average goes up a little. music by the aloha boys made it feel like a luau. for parents a chance to relax without their kids in the ocean. >> it's relaxing. >> reporter: and for kids, a chance to make up new words. >> beachy. >> reporter: but if you're wondering why anyone would do this instead of going to a real beenks well, in washington, the beach is three hours away. >> reporter: did you ever think the commute to the beach would be short? >> it's the best commute to the beefrp. >> reporter: and there's another snieng no shark attack. >> no shark attack. >> there's no shark or any animals that could hurt you. >> reporter: well, in fact, as you can see, there are some sharks but i'm told they hartley ever bite. there used to be lots of guys, but they're so popular people
8:40 am
keep takeling them home. they're now an endangered species. i prefer to use them as a headrest. >> chip, i love that you wore your hawaiian shirt to be in the spirit of things. >> very, very cute. >> reporter: i feel like i'm at the beach. >> chip, thanks. >> he's leading a new exploration. sam cossman is in the toyota green room.

. he considers himself the indiana jones of the digital era. when you see his videos, it's easy to understand why. he traveled six times to the volcano dotted nation of the south pacific. he's made two expeditions inside the active crater used drones, gopros and other technology. he and his team recorded dramatic footage. it shows a 2,000-degree lava lake known as the entrance to hello. it quickly became an internet sensation. good morning, sam. >> good morning. >> you described being in a volcano like being sensory overload. if you go down 1,000 degrees.
8:45 am
>> yes. it's extremely hot, overwhelming. just getting there requires a herculean effort. some describe it as a reverse everest. you're kind of descending into the molten core of it. >> how do you do that? >> it requires a lot of planning, a lot of preparation, but ultimately, you know, it's a 1,200 foot descent and you're climbing down on a relatively heat-resistant rope similar to the empire state building and you walk to the center of the earth. >> you were hit by a piece of lava. it can be dangerous. >> it can be dangerous. there are calculated risks. but, the lava is a force of nature. it's teatally unpredictable. you have to keep your eye on u. we went with volcanologists who could give us an idea if there were any extreme dangers. it's worth the risk. >> you're going down the height of an empire state building in

these things, right? >> that's right. >> you're wearing a suit about the temp you get to? >> that's correct. >> you lost two or three drones on one expedition, didn't you? >> yeah. the drones are subjecting to heat. there's toxic gases which corrode it. the rotors themselves tend to melt as do our cameras and we did lose a couple of the drones. unfortunately we were able to still get footage. >> what do you feel when you're suspended there 20 meters above the lava? >> yeah, you're about 20 meters from the actual lava. ice kind of exploding like the bi bi billagio. >> but there's no music. >> yeah. >> how do you feel? >> you feel like a baked potato

in the embers of the campfire. you can only stand there a couple of seconds before you feel it's too hot so you go back. the edge is about 200 degrees and -- by the wall where yo you drop in. as you walk to the shore of the lava, it's about 1,000 degrees. >> why did you do this? i think i'm wired this way. i'm fascinated by the planet and science and i've always gotten a kick to go to places that are out of reach and hard to gain access to and i have a desire to share these miraculous hidden gems of the world with others who don't have the opportunity to explore that. i believe we're at a point where technology is becoming increasingly available and we're able to use it in ways that are uncon vengszal and peer into other parts of the world that other explorers and adventure rifts aren't able to see. >> what did you learn? >> i learned a lot about myself
8:48 am
and what i'm made of and volcanos actually along the way. an interesting fact of volcanos that i thought really interesting is that they emit huge amounts of sulphur, dioxide, and toxic gases which most people think are attributing to the global warming but nktd they can reflect the solar radiation and serve ads a cooling factor for the earth. it's quite the opposite. >> and now you're partnering with "national geographic"? >> that's correct. my dad used to read them to me. that's one of things that helped influence who i've become. i came back from my trup and created a viral video and they picked it up. that's what opened a dialogue to produce it, a series of expeditions with "national geographic." it's quite exciting. >> congratulations.
8:49 am
>> i bet you don't miss your desk tech job. >> i miss the guys i used to work with, but the job not so much. >> please be safe. thank you so much. >> thanks for having me. it's not too young to learn a home run swing. that's next on "cbs this morning."
